Same problem, I can’t get them to go back together, I don’t want to crush the ring…
Great guide!!! Although I have a couple notes: I might have a newer version of the phone:I also had the white cable that isn't shown or listed in this guide.I used the same technique as the blue cable-anybody completing this guide can do the same.Something I did on accident to be wary of is that when using a plastic prying tool on Steps 25-27, I bent in the volume rocker leads and when I reassembled they wouldn't work.Had to take the phone apart again and test, carefully bending them back upward with the pointed end of the spudger. Everything was fine after reassembly.One final note--the pictures are great, but a complete before macro photo of necessary phone parts would be amazing-I couldn't tell in the pictures if leads were supposed to be bent upwards--the rest seemed to be all lapped over in that fashion so I felt I was really taking a risk--if I had a macro of the motherboard at 45 degrees I'd have been able to see that it was supposed to be bent upward. Otherwise, amazing guide and many thanks!!!
